Very good learning experience. I wanted to learn about patenting in biotechnology field and it is best course to do... Thankyou coursera providing such field where we can learn and enhance our skills.
The course is perfectly designed for patenting in the biotechnology field with detailed patent searching tools and databases. I highly recommend this course.

The course follows a book (listed in the resources, which is highly recommended that you buy for cca 20€, if I remember correctly) and is tought quite well, similar to a introductory undergrad curriculum. The assignments are well designed and you need to apply a bit of time and energy to finish them (but not really that much). The biggest deficit of the course is the fact that you need access to commercial databases such as Web of Science (Derwent) and SciFinder. While several Universities and public libraries do in fact offer unlimited access to these services, you should check in advance if this is in fact true for you also - in particular, the SciFinder database in many cases has limited users (e.g., only faculty staff etc) even in public institutions.

A really good course if you have access to all of the required content and textbook, very comprehensive. Before you start/pay definitely make sure you have access to SciFinder and possibly Derwent (although this second one isn't essential, just helpful) as well as access to the Patenting in Biotechnology textbook they describe as some of the required assignments to pass need them.
I know so much more about biotechnology patents after taking this course, really pleased with how much I have learnt. Some of the peer-reviewed assignments were poorly explained/too difficult for the wrong reasons however.

More information about unlicensed databases such as Pubchem, chemspider and more about patentscope handling. Vedios based on patentscope search .

very informative classes, Nicely delivered by all faculty

Easy to understand!! Loaded with knowledge:)

Good insight on Intellectual properties for Chemist and Health Care Proffessionals. The communication with the peer and teachers is not that well, since nobody seems to participate on the forum.
Some of the materials are not available for everyone (hard copy) or online.

It has great potencial, bit it assumes that people have access to paid/university resources + it ask for a book that is sold out.
Also it should be updated ... a biotech course that is 5 years old is practically obsolete

El curso es muy bueno pero utilizan bases de datos como Derwent y Scifinder que son privadas y los alumnos no tienen acceso. Podrían usar bases de patentes de acceso libre

Useful for learning about boolean searches and use of SCifinder.
The course was informative, but all the lectures were focused towards patent searching rather than patentability on various products in biotechnology. The assignment required access to paid data bases. Quizzes were of good quality. More lectures on various biotech patents should be part of this course.

The course lectures are of good quality and very relevant, the lecturers cover the subject well. Unfortunately the course was not designed for a broad audience: only students from universities that have access to databases with paywall can complete the course. The course readings must be purchased and databases with paywall are required for completing successfully the course assignments. For this reason, peer reviewing a row of very bad quality assignments does not contribute to the learning experience. Some learners submit empty assignments to have access to the peer reviewed assignments that they can copy later for the resubmission. I happen to peer-review an assignment that was a word-to-word copy of my submission! These learners must be excluded from the course for. cheating!
